Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Io'vai, despite his rather feminine-sounding name, appears no more female than his dragon does male. He has a shaggy mane of black hair, and almost-black-but-still-brown eyes that pretty much reek masculinity. Or is that just his sweat? Either way, he tends to stink after pretty much anything, even, on occaision, swimming. Although, the stench isn't very strong after swimming, unless he sits in the sun or something afterwards. His skin is heavily tanned and almost always gleaming from that particular liquid called sweat that seems to love him so much, and he is quite tall and muscular.
Personality: Io'vai tends to be considered a joker, because he jokes to try and get peoples' minds off of his smell- which is lightening, believe it or not. He'll get anyone possible at night (or during the day if need be, assuming they get past the slow-fading smell), male or female. There's also some sourceless rumours that he had to sink to beasts once, because they were the only things that stood his smell, which had been worse when he was younger. He vehemently denies this. Whenever someone refuses him, he tends to pout and complain that they just can't stand a little BO. He is used to it though, so he gets over it quick.
History: Io'vai grew up as a beastcrafter's fourth son. All three older brothers and two sisters (one older, one younger) somehow ended up rather... Petite. Very petite. So he had to do most of the work, while his 'disgraceful' siblings were apprenticed to Harpercrafthall (eldest brother, younger sister), Healercrafthall (older sister), and Dolphincrafthall (youngest older brother). His middle older brother was Searched out of the Vintnercrafthall just two days after being apprenticed. He Impressed blue Rynoth. Rynoth and his brother are in Ista Weyr.
Information about Io'vai's dragon
Dragon Name: Avaranth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Avaranth is a vibrant light green, like the colour of an early spring bud. She is very sleekly formed, and very streamlined. Her sides (of head body, and every other part of her) are gracefully curved and smooth. She only has a little Threadscoring, on her right wingtip.
Personality: Avaranth is _very_ proud of her form, and displays it to her best advantage. She shows off to all the male dragons, even the bronzes, although she knows there is no hope in catching one of their eyes. She is very friendly and talkative, although she can get offended easily at times, and then simply ignores you. Or goes _between_ in front of you without warning, if she happens to be far enougth above the ground.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Very quick due to sleekness, but a slightly smaller flame than usual.
